Help Keep Fire Hydrants Visible and Accessible in the Snow
By Battalion Chief Duane Christensen
The Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Fire Protection District would like to remind residents of the importance of having snow removed from around fire hydrants. With the recent snow storms many area fire hydrants have become invisible and inaccessible due to being covered in snow. We would like to ask residents to assist the Fire Department by removing the snow from the fire hydrants if they are able. In the unfortunate event of a house fire, the time spent trying to locate a fire hydrant buried in snow can make a critical difference in the outcome.
